Faculty Member Offers Professional, Inspirational Talks


Paul 'Babe' MayerPaul “Babe” Mayer, associate professor of fitness and lifetime sports, has offered several talks in June.

Mayer was an invited speaker at the student body awards assembly at Loyalsock Township High School. His subject was “Paradigm Pioneering,” which posed the question to the student body, “Are you the pioneer or the settler?” The pioneer, he explained, is the risk taker who reaps the best rewards, while the settler lets others set the path and then safely follows behind.

On June 12 and 13, Mayer was a presenter at the Pennsylvania State Strength & Conditioning Clinic at Juniata College. His topics were “Functional Training for Athletes of All Ages” and “Core Training Breakout Session.”

In addition to full-time faculty responsibilities for the physical fitness specialist degree at Penn College, Mayer is owner of Mayer Sports Training Center in Williamsport.
